Trump defends Postal Service changes


Washington: US President Donald Trump has defended his administration`s efforts to implement changes at the US Postal Service ahead of November`s election, despite an outcry from Democrats and other critics, and said he would support efforts to expand in-person voting.

In an interview with Fox News, President Trump said he would support more voting booths, early voting and other efforts but reiterated his attacks against mail-in voting.

Trump said he wants the postal agency to run efficiently.

The House is expected to consider legislation to protect the Postal Service from what Pelosi on Sunday called Trump`s campaign to sabotage the election by manipulating the Postal Service to disenfranchise voters.

Several Democratic state attorneys general are also considering potential legal action to stop Postal Service changes that could affect the election outcome.
